CRJ 209 Terrorism and Homeland Security


This course will seek to place recent acts of terrorism in context: historical, military, geopolitical and religious. It will examine the motivations, organization and tactics of various terrorist organizations as well as the "force multipliers" of technology, media and religion. Specific focus will be placed on the impact of terrorism on intelligence agencies, law enforcement and other security forces. The significant challenge posed by trying to balance the need to maintain the safety and security of citizens with the threats to civil liberties posed by increases in the exercise of governmental power will be addressed.
